AMD's 45-nm quad-core Opteron processor, formerly known as "Shanghai," contains some notable advances over its predecessor, the 60-nm Barcelona. The AMD Shanghai is the first AMD chip built on the company's 45-nanometer manufacturing process, and chips in this series will have higher clock speeds, larger Level 3 cache sizes and better power efficiency compared with the previous generation of 65-nm Opteron processors. The first of these 45-nm Opteron processors is slated for two- and four-way systems. New 45-nm processors for single-socket servers and desktops will follow in 2009.
